Like my earlier creativity game with the word “flower,” “salad” is one of those terms that is almost universally recognized, and yet depending on your habits, culture, or upbringing can have many different meanings. Thanks to a period in my life when I was a vegetarian, and my husband’s rampant carnivorous nature, salad also has emotional texture. For such a simple word, depending on the context, it can carry a lot of weight, both positive and negative.
So, what do you think of when you hear the word “salad”? What’s your first thought, and why do you think that is?
Please leave your word play in the comments, and feel free to use a link to a picture or drawing if that’s how you find it easiest to express.
And like the earlier creativity game, I will explore the answers in a later post, so pass it along and let’s see just how broad the perceptions of this common word can be.
